Bus Rapid Transit in New North

HART has been investigating economical service improvements for riders.  As a result of a Transit Corridors Study completed in February 2008, a corridor selected for further study is one located partly within the New North service area.  This proposed North/South Corridor is composed of Fletcher Avenue and Nebraska Avenue, which would connect to the Tampa downtown Marion Transit Center, the University Area Transit Transfer Center, and to a proposed park-and-ride lot at the Hidden River Corporate Park near I-75.  The BRT service, called MetroRapid, is proposed to operate in mixed traffic (no exclusive transit lanes) and will feature transit signal priority, off-board fare collection, and enhanced passenger stops.  More Information
